    You can read all the stories and watch all the videos you want, but there's no substitute for just getting out there and doing it.

    Aformentioned pics!





    First Mod-




    Also installed a K&N air filter and a fisheye mirror on each side mirror.

    Future (immediate) mods-
    Install the CB/Coax/Mount/Antenna
    Paint the wheels black


    Things ahead of us-
    Shrockworks Front/Rear Tire Carrier/Sliders/Skids
    Dean/Cooper M/T 265/75R16
    GOBI Rack
    3" Front and rear lift (I'll figure out exactly which later)
    ScangaugeII w/ Blendmount


    And an idea I have for the "trunk" is to figure out a way to mount a 2nd battery and air compressor.

    And of course the appropriate Girlie Offroad stickers. Hibiscus flower, "INFIDEL", "Silly Boys, 4X4's are for Girls", and "Jeep Recovery Vehicle" are ones she's been interested in getting.


    I also decided when I upgrade the suspension, add in stainless brake lines, and replace the brakes with R1 Concepts premium, I'm going to paint her calipers bright pink. (She doesn't know this yet, but she'll love it).


    So, if you all would, raise a glass tonight to another vehicle being purchased to be used as it's designed.

    I love my 07 Xterra Offroad. My next project will be a second battery. My plan is to remove the back seat and put it in the middle. This will keep the weight centered and then build storage. I am going to use the National Luna dual battery setup with an Odyssey 2150 battery. Good luck you have a great looking X.
